Lucy Rose was the first artist we featured on our Ones to Watch for 2012 list. So now it is 2012, let’s watch, or rather listen to her wonderful sound. Red Face is Lucy’s third single, the music the most energised we’ve heard from her so far, expelling the stereotype of being ‘just another acoustic folk artist’ by juxtaposing stirring guitars against her tenderly soft vocal as she sings of mistrust. “And you said it’s what I needed, I don’t believe,” she intones before the music positively grooves and chimes to soft-destruction over the repeated lines “take what you wanted, leave what you didn't need.”
With a confirmed tour support with Noah and the Whale plus an album due in summer 2012, this year promises to be an exciting year for Lucy and her growing number of fans.
